The morning mist cleared to give a fine afternoon at South Ramsey on Saturday 13 July where a field of 25 gathered to compete for the Omega Cup. The very fast green did not suit everybody but games were played in good spirit punctuated by gasps of disbelief as woods trickled off the edge.
Quarter-finals: Philippa Fletcher 21, Mary Simmonds 14; Lyn Bolton 21, Jill Quayle 8; Rita Callan 21, Elaine Moore 12; Jenny Moore 21, Maureen Payne 9.
Semi-finals: Lyn Bolton 21, Philippa Fletcher 13; Jenny Moore 21, Rita Callan 13
With games starting off 3 the final started with the players matching each other up to 9-9 when Lyn went into a 13-10 lead. Jenny then got hold of the jack and gave a thrilling exhibition of playing a fast green which, despite Lyn also playing some good woods which did not count, took her through to win 21-13.
The presentation was made by Ladies’ President Moira Anderson who thanked everyone who had contributed to the success of the afternoon.
